Healthy Food Choices for Spring Menus

Whether you're sticking to your New Year's resolution to eat healthier or you're looking to mix up your spring menus with fresh, seasonal fare, these four food choices will supercharge your spring menus and your body with healthy benefits.

Artichokes. If you're looking to boost your energy, you will want to add artichokes to your grocery-shopping list. Artichokes are chock-full of magnesium, a great source of energy.

Asparagus. Perk up your palate and your body with asparagus. Asparagus contains a B vitamin called folate, which plays a part in the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin.

Salmon. Many people know that salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, but did you know that one of those fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), offers wrinkle prevention?! Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) naturally helps to block the release of UV-induced enzymes that reduce collagen, causing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Spinach. Popeye is not the only one who loves spinach for its strength enhancing qualities! Athletes know that spinach can provide lasting power, due to its excellent source of iron. Iron, found in red blood cells, fuel muscles with oxygen for energy.

Four simple spring foods, four delicious ways to enhance your health and well being! So the next time you're eating a plate of delightful salmon and asparagus, you can feel extra happy knowing your helping your skin and boosting your energy!
